Kootchi

Afghani in Latin Quarter

Behind a sky-blue façade, carpets, traditional instruments and other jumble lend this Afghan restaurant a central-Asian caravanserai air. Specialities include qhaboli palawo (veal stew with nuts and spices); dogh, a drink similar to salted Indian lassi; and traditional halwa (sweet cake) perfumed with rose and cardamom.

Vegetarians keen to spice up their culinary life should go for the borani palawo (spicy vegetable stew) as a main course.
